We’re The Winging It Girls’ Guide – aka TWIGG How-To.
We know navigating independence is hard – but you CAN fireproof your apartment, land your dream job, and build good credit. All you need is the right information, and the confidence in knowing that other girls have tried before you and made it happen. TWIGG How-To is your one stop shop for the practical advice you need to thrive on your own – all written by women for women.
OUR MISSION IS TO ANSWER ANY QUESTIONS YOU MAY HAVE, AND AS A COMMUNITY GROW TOGETHER TO CREATE A DAMSEL-FREE WORLD, ONE ARTICLE AT A TIME.
It all started with four Los Angeles based ladies who, after an afternoon swapping war stories about everything from first apartments to first jobs, realized that websites for women could use a bit of a makeover.
The internet is full of lifestyle blogs aimed at teaching young women about the season’s most fabulous get-ups and makeup styles. We love a good fashion site as much as the next – but what happens after you step into the world looking flawless? Perfectly applied lipstick isn’t going to change your oil, or help you save for retirement.
Not the type to shy away from a challenge, we decided to create a community where this practical knowledge is shared and celebrated. We asked girls across the nation what they’d like to learn, collected answers from other women who have been there before, and The Winging It Girl’s Guide, aka TWIGG How-To, was born.
What We Believe
We believe in creating a damsel-free world. We believe in sharing knowledge and supporting one another. We believe in community. We believe in trying and failing.
And we believe it’s okay to ask for help.
TWIGG How-To started as a site by women, for women. But our ultimate aim is inclusivity, and we understand gender and sex are not binary. However you identify, we hope you find this site helpful. We believe in the equality of all humans, regardless of race, gender, sexual orientation, social status, income, age, or other differentiating feature. This is our feminism.
We believe in creating an inclusive space. We consciously choose to use “they” as a singular pronoun rather than the binary “he or she.” TWIGG How-To is a platform for voices that are not always heard; we encourage as many diverse experiences and perspectives as possible.
We believe that people are not perfect and that they can evolve. This applies to us too – we may have made mistakes somewhere on this site.
If you find one, please tell us! Our platform is always growing and evolving.
We believe, at the end of the day, we’re all just wingin’ it.
Together we are capable of accomplishing any goal, big or small.
TWIGG How-To started with 4 girlfriends & 4 laptops …
but we’ve come a long way with a little (or a lot) of help from our friends.
Everything TWIGG How-To is created by 20-something women (& our Wingmen) winging it together!
